François Mignard is a member of the Gaia Science Team and chair of the Data Analysis Consortium Committee (DACC). In this latter role he leads the effort to form the Gaia Data Processing Consortium which will be responsible for treating the enormous dataset generated by Gaia. Prior to Gaia François played a key role in the Hipparcos mission as part of the FAST data reduction consortium. He also leads two of the Gaia working groups: the solar system working group, and the relativity and reference frame working group. This reflects his scientific interests which are in the fields of astrometry, reference frames, solar system objects and planetary detection.
